Two fun events, and I’m debating if I can figure out how to do both.
Sauced Takes Thalia Hall! (6 – 11 pm)
Chicago’s raddest night market returns, this time taking over Thalia Hall with 30+ vendors of food, beer, and local goods.
I can’t speak much about all the amazing local goods, but there’s a list here at the Facebook event page.
What I can do is highly recommend innovative young breweries Marz Community Brewing and Moody Tongue Brewing. Both are on the forefront of Chicago’s craft scene, using culinary techniques or modern brewing twists on classic styles.
Towers of Sours at Fountainhead (7 – 11 pm)
Get all the Destihl sour beers you can possibly experience in one evening, on the Rooftop at Fountainhead. 12 taps, 12 Destihl beers, including a “surprise” offering of their sour base (if you weren’t already surprised by all the St. Dekkera offerings, this is the beer that underlies all of them). See the list below!
